hi marv,Ford Power Live was a blast. Everything went well. Although the good company was the highlight rather than the event itself.
EnduraKA wasn't there this year and I fear that yet again, it's becoming just another show that's overrun with modified clone mk7s.
Maybe they're still to new for people to be doing something interesting and unique.
I'm sure there's one or two out there at uk show, somewhere, harnessing the power of Red-neck Science.
Anyway, here's a photo a friend took as we were getting ready to leave.

Also, I made a new mount for the ecu.

Gotta keep the crash bar nice and cool.hi marv,
every time i see this car its got more holes drilled in it
How is the fuel inertia switch wired? Just a live circuit on an inertia switch? Or is there any CAN wiring too?If you're going more track focused, then while the dash is out, and before you fit your cage - you might want to dump the fuel pump inertia cut off switch. They are a pain with kerb strikes.
The good news is that it then makes for an easy place to wire in a fuel drain switch.
I'll be interested to see how you get on with the heater, I don't run one in mine - but I did retain the heated front screen. Driver cooling is a bigger problem in mine.
Lovely. Good to know. I don't have issues on kurbs tbh, stricter tracks like my local Brands Hatch don't like you crossing the kurbs on trackdays. To the point where I've been black flagged for it.Just the 12v.
You can just cut the two green wires from the base of the switch and splice them back together, to bypass it.
Hi Marv,Had a bit of spare time Friday afternoon to finally get the replacement bonet cut to suit aero catches and the Caterham inlet.
Cleaned it up and finished the underside in matt moondust silver to keep it looking oem.
For those of you that haven't seen what the cutouts usually look like on the underside of a bonet with aero catches... let's just say, it's less than desirable as you have to factor in an offset taper between upper and lower holes. Which cannot be measured and cut from the underside given the way the bonet structure curves. Unless you just cut out a gaping big square.
So I spent some time getting it as neat as I did and am very happy with the outcome.

They can be sprayed, I just have no plans to do so.Hi Marv,
Great job, ITs a shame the catches can't be got colour coded,
I used a 29mm/ 44mm holesaw and a grinder to cut the excess.That looks much the same as how I did mine, I used a Dremel and took my time. But I have seen a very neat job done with just a ~5inch hole saw.
That's right... The one I was describing had just hole sawed a big circle in the bottom skin, looked like a really neat but fast way to get it done.It's the same size cutouts in the top and bottom skin.
